I have a lot of ideas.
It was recently suggested to me that I should start putting these ideas into a folder.
At first I was annoyed by this comment. Put my ideas away? My ideas are my lifeblood. My ideas are what inspires my work.
But, the more that I think about it, maybe an idea folder isn't a bad idea.
I am realizing that my ideas don't have a lot of impact now. Without those ideas attached to a plan to get them out to the world they might as well not exist. Essentially what I am doing is putting them away by not doing anything with them.
But, the simple act of collecting those ideas into a folder is a good first step in getting them out into the world.
Of course, it is going to take more than stashing my ideas to get them out into the world. I need to take action too, so a couple things I am going to do:
1.) I'll use my ideas as inspiration for posts here.
2.) I'll revisit my ideas when I brainstorm for projects.
If you want to follow along, here are my ideas.
